NAME
       vfs_linux_xfs_sgid - Workaround XFS sgid bit not inherited

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = linux_xfs_sgid

DESCRIPTION
       This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

       vfs_linux_xfs_sgid is a VFS module to work around an old Linux XFS bug
       fixed in 3.11: the SGID bit is not inherited during mkdir when a
       default ACL is set
       (https://web.archive.org/web/20160320180937/http://oss.sgi.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=280
       fixed by
       https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=42c49d7f249c2487f36d3314753d5d8ebcee8249).
       The vfs_linux_xfs_sgid VFS module will work around this bug by manually
       setting the SGID bit after a mkdir if the parent directory had the SGID
       bit set.

       This module is stackable.

EXAMPLES
       Add syncops functionality for [share]:

                   [share]
                vfs objects = linux_xfs_sgid
